Sesame oil has been reported to contain sesamolin, sesamin and sesamol as contact allergens. A female patient had chelitis due to sesame oil in a lipstick. She reacted to sesamolin and sesamin, but not to sesamol. We earned mil analysis of the sesame oil by high performance liquid chromatography. We detected sesamolin and sesamin but not sesamol in sesame oil.
